All Moved In

Only with this family is it possibly to move a 4-person household into a new residence in 2 days without a moving crew! haha, my practically non-existent muscles were pushed to their limits, but all for the best. We're comfortably settled in, (though we still have some things to unpack), and I've been feverishly working on my latest painting in my terrific new studio. I'm in almost complete solitude here, with the forest and mountains right outside my window, and I feel as close to a hermit as I will ever be. So lovely...coyotes, eagles, rabbits, birds, and all kinds of moths and night bugs that I never knew existed...this place is perfect!

Look what came in from the photographer's yesterday (there's a bit of the frame in the picture):

"The Widowed Bride."
12" x 16"
Acrylic on wood.
For Roq la Rue's 10th Year Anniversary Show!
Seattle, WA. July, 2008.
waiting list/sales:

Oh, and it's the last week and a half of my 21st year on this planet! (aka I'll be 22 soon) Moving here is the greatest birthday gift though : D

Just a snippet...

Finally finished my piece for Roq la Rue's 10th Year Anniversary Group Show. Here is a preview...I'm sending it out to get photographed this week, and will have a nice juicy jpeg later next week. A bit behind on my schedule because...the whole clan and I are moving THIS WEEKEND. Yup, excitement! And mayhem! Moving my studio will be a real challenge. I wish I could get a teleporting device that would transport me with desk, painting supplies and all. :P

Ah well.

Look out for Gallery 1988 SF's group show opening this Friday! Check out the sneak peek here!

"Red Matryoshka" 5" x 7"; Acrylic on wood.
for auction in August at Distinction Gallery

I finished this one last week, but I won't get it shot until next week, probably, so here's a preview. The panel has a 2" inch deep cradle, so I had some room to add more characters on the sides. I scanned the sides and photoshopped them in with the piece so you can see how it would continue if it were to lie flat. But please note that the piece will look most like the top image, haha. Here's the "extended" version:

Also got the drawing done for the Copro Nason piece and it is cray-zay, is all I can say. I think saying that it will have "a lot of details" would be an understatement! But now I can paint peacefully. It's all figured out : ) Here's to happy painting!

And on an unrelated note: 33 campeonatos. No nos alcanzan mas. El mas grande...lejos. What a fantastic way to celebrate this weekend and the next! Love it!

A Quickie

I know this looks familiar, but I wanted to share the professional shot of it. ; ) Just shipped it off this morning.

Alllllmost done with my piece for Distinction Gallery (opening in August), and just about ready to start on the one for Roq la Rue. Was at a book convention last week (3 or 4 days) and also saw Wicked the musical (amaaaaaaaazing! can't say enough about it, so I won't even try, but it was funny, poignant, spectacular, and just absolutely unbelievable).
You thought May was busy? June just got busier! Weeee!
